Author Jackie Collins OBE attended and when her teachers discovered her selling her self-penned dirty limericks to fellow pupils at a penny a time, and instalments of her passionate saga Letters from Bobby, Jackie was asked to leave. I was finally expelled after they caught me smoking behind a tree on the lacrosse pitch, she wrote in her autobiography.
